Spent 11 Nights in February 2008 in a Sea View suite.

Room very good with great view and plenty of room (Great size bed)
Super bathroom & tub.

Pools very good and extremely relaxing place to be.

The disappointing areas were the food - not at a 5 star level in my experience as a restauranteur (Buffet average) and also service around the pool regards drinks would have been expected.

Although we went at a reasonably quiet time - I got the impression that the place needed an injection of 'Life' from the management and a lot of the bars/entertainment areas were just not being utilised by the customers because of this lack of atmosphere.

15 minute walk to beach at Del Duque - nice clean & small beach resort with a couple of nice restaurants. (Go and see Ged Roberts singing at the Mirabelle)

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks October 2007, the staff were very helpful and always booked reservations at restaurants and taxi's for us which were there very quickly.

The breakfasts were lovely and the staff great.

The hotel itself it beautifully decorated and the rooms really nice. The only downside of it was there was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room you had to get a kettle from reception and pay a deposit of 10 euro's for the priviledge, the other point was that there was no iron or trouser press, we put my husbands shirts into guest services to get ironed, this was not cheap it worked out about £10 for 3 shirts, the hotel is absolutely fantastic and the decor beautiful but they havn't got the basics right, nonetheless we are going back to the vincci in october 2008.

They do have a policy of not reserving sunbeds in the morning, saying towels will be removed, guess who broke that rule!!, mind you there are plenty to go around and always clean towels for the sunbeds

La Caletta is close by with lovely fish restaurants and a good italian but if you go down the hill from the vincci there are a numer of good bar and restaurants there too.

we booked into the vincci la plantacion, having booked a superior double with full sea view. On arrival we had to carry our own bags to reception as there was no consiege staff, and were then told that we had only booked bed and breakfast, which was not the case as we had already paid for half board. We then had to go through the process of showing our booking confirmation which took rather a while to convince the staff, and did not get this holiday of to a pleasant start. We were then showed a room that overlooked a very noisy and busy junction, at the side of the hotel with a partial sea view, if you craned your neck sufficiently round the balcony. We said we were not at all happy with the room and the noise of the traffic, so we were shown two other rooms. We ended up paying an extra 110 euros a night for a junior suite with sea view. Two other couples that we met had the same experience with their rooms on arrival and had to insist on what they had actually booked. The food was good most of the time, but the buffet was sometimes a bit dissapointing. Staff lovely, spa stunning. A very expensive and somewhat mixed experience.

This was a truly 5* experience. All the staff were attentive and friendly. The facilities were first class, programme of cultural and physical activities were there to be dipped in to if you wanted, live music daily, gym and health spa beautifully clean and well kept.
Breakfast buffet was generous and varied, evening meals were also very good. We never had room for lunch by the pool but it looked good too.

At the time of year we went, there were mostly middle-aged or elderly residents or those with young children. Ideal for both these groups. The hotel is at the top of a hill, so if you want to go out you might need a taxi back, but these are very cheap. It does also mean that it's nice and quiet.

If you want a holiday sitting by the pool in palatial surroundings set in a lovely garden, then this is the hotel to choose.

We really liked the hotel and if offered us the peace and relaxation we were looking for. However, we were really disappointed to find there were no coffee and tea making facilities in the room, not even complimentary water (even on a day when they had problems with brown water coming from the taps). If you wanted to buy a very small bottle of water it costs 2.50 euros.
We also felt that the food was not of a 5 star standard, but more of a 3 star. We never ate a la carte as this would have been too expensive - the lunches and evening buffet were costly enough (45 euros per person for dinner). The lunch menu selection was poor and greasy, and we had to consider the 24 hour room service menu one evening as we both had upset stomachs, and again found this to have a poor selection and greasy overly expensive dishes. When we pay that amount of money, we expect to get better food than what we would make for ourselves at home, but in all honesty I thought I could do a better job myself... and that's saying something.
We cannot fault the hotel though. The staff are all really friendly, and we got the rest and relaxation in lovely surroundings which we were hoping for. If they give value for money when it comes to food and drinks, I would definitely be recommending this hotel to everybody.

i stayed at this hotel with for one week only on bed and breakfast basis. The hotel itself is very impresive. on arrival we got the champagne reseption and snacks which is the norm at this hotel and someone took our bags straigt to our room, which ad been upgraded free of charge to my surprise to a junior suite.

the rooms were massive, A his and hers bathroom with full jet shower room seperate toilet room and massive tub bath. The room itself had two parts a living area/ sleeping area and both came with massive flat screen tvs. All the suites have sea views looking over to Del Duque Beach.Towels were changed daily sometimes twice as the maids came back at night to turn down your duvet and leave a chocolate sweet on your pillow.

The bed in this room was bigger than a King a could roll over about 5 times and not fall out (no joke).

The food at the hotel wasnt as good as a have had previouslt at a 5* hotel but was fine as i was only having the breakfast. There was a full selection of hot and cold foods, drinks and champagne.

The pools are great , extremly relaxing. and plenty of loungers.

There was no entertainment when i was at this hotel exept dancing one night.

The resort of Costa Adeje was lovely, the restaurants ranged from extremely expensive to extremely cheap £26 for a 3 course meal and bottle of wine ( for 2).

enjoyed my stay at this hotel.

Ps Loro Parque is a must.

An excellent new hotel.
We took the room with an open air jacuzzi. It was a superb room in all means. A perfect room for a couple getaway. Truly relaxing. We enjoyed every moment of it.
